Well, here I am again on what is still Monday...with a second Cactus Monday post! LOL. It just so happens I stopped by Lowes tonight after work and found a couple of plants...this first one is called Titanopsis calcarea, otherwise commonly called Concrete Leaf Living Stone, or Jewel Weed. It is very unusual looking and has a nice soothing shape. I can't wait to see it grow...it is in a very small container right now!
I posed these two new plants with my Buddha all dressed up for Fat Tuesday tomorrow! LOL. He makes a perfect backdrop!
This second succulent (a cactus, mind you), is called Cereus forbesii monstrose.
Cereus 'Ming Thing' is a very attractive monstrose form of Cereus forbesii. Forms myriads of sculptural blue shapes with very short black spines and woolly areoles. Excellent for windowsill or dish garden culture. Prefers shade or filtered light. It is fairly large specimen at this point...about 8 inches high! I love it...it is so odd looking...kinda like a bunch of melting candles fusing together if you ask me! I am so happy to be adding these two to my succulent collections!
